Legal The legal back-and-forth between Apple and clone-maker PsyStar continues to develop, with the latest news being a move by Apple - the Cupertino company has invoked something with many already predicted Apple would call upon: the DMCA, or the Digital Millenium Copyright Act. This was done in an amendment to the original suit, filed in July this year.

Sort of pirated my ass. For every psystar box being used there is a paid to apple for copy of Mac Osx being used. The judge SHOULD throw this out as a case of the product has been paid for, it's none of Apple's business what it's used for. If I buy a car can the manufacturer sue me for putting it on the roof of my house? or for selling that car to someone who wants to use it in his garage? No I think not. Why the hell should PC software be different to a car?

So when you do a Software Update that effects low-level changes in the OS resulting in a broken system are you going to sue Psystar when they put their hands up and say, ``Call Apple'' or will you expect them to be liable if their hardware flakes out and requires labor costs and replaced parts?
